For a Lolita Steampunk Cosplay, I wanted a Lolita prop. ~giggle~ a LOLLYPOP.
So let's see how to make a steampunk version of a lollypop.
Instead of getting the expensive steampunk gears at the craft store, I went to the original source, the Hardware Store! I went through the different buckets of bulk goods and picked up random pieces that I thuoght would look cool together, including a long screw to use as a handle.
Alcohol ink will dry to metal, and not rub off but it will if you spill a happy hour drink on it. It's just randomly dab it all over the metal pieces to give it an non uniformed colouring.
Than using industrial super glue I randomly arranged them into a lollypop shape.
The glue isn't ment for metal, so after many uses, some of the joints did get lose, so a little extra glue helped them stay put.
